Health-Guard

The first and most important profile (in our opinion) is the Health-Guard – when being used with our LM Profiles application, Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body.

Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate (they may seem strange at first but after a few minutes our brain will start recognizing them as accurate ones – that’s how Health-Guard differs from alternatives like f.lux).

Office Work and Web Design

The second profile type is Office Work and Web Design. Business tasks are various, most often related to a set of office-targeted applications. Sometimes, working outside is necessary. In such cases color accuracy is paramount, but so is image clarity, brightness, contrast etc. A piece of text must be legible, graphics and histograms must be clear. All of this is precisely what this profile is for. If you’re doing office work, web design, or simply value color accuracy when browsing the Internet, this is the profile to use!

It’s important to note that not all displays are suited for Web design – our profiles can not compensate for insufficient sRGB coverage (most TN panels have this problem), so you you might want to check our detailed color tests in the respective product reviews we’ve done if you want to use the machine for professional work.

Gaming and Movie Nights

Gaming is among the main driving forces for the fast clip of hardware development. Gamers are well-aware of the fact that a poor image can ruin the entire experience.

The same goes for watching movies. Imagine sitting down for a nice movie after a long day, and barely making out what’s on the screen. The ‘Gaming and movie night’ profile can make a huge difference. We strongly recommend you use it, since it’s gamma curve is specifically tuned to reveal details in the dark sections of the image.

Here’s what this amounts to:

Office Work - screen profile

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Lenovo ThinkPad T570 in-depth review

The ThinkPad T570 remains as a classic, even though it was released just a few months prior to this review. But why classic then? Well, it carries a brand new chassis, which appears to be lighter and thinner than its predecessor, packs the latest hardware but at the same time retains the iconic ThinkPad appearance and feel. The AccuType style keyboard is good as always, the touchpad is nearly perfect and you can still take advantage of the TrackPoint for easier mouse navigation. But what [...]

Pros

  • Sturdy case and fairly portable for a 15-incher
  • Excellent keyboard, comfortable TrackPoint, good touchpad (with a small exception)
  • The screen doesn't use PWM across all brightness levels
  • Dual-battery system with hot swap support and the external battery can be upgraded
  • Good battery runtimes even with the stock setup
  • Silent and reliable cooling solution

Cons

  • The clickpad is a bit too stiff in some areas
  • Pricey
  • Low-quality IPS panel (low maximum brightness, just half sRGB coverage)
  • Doesn't have a 2.5-inch bay (you can either have an M.2 SSD or a 2.5-inch drive)
